I have so many things to share that I thought I’d do a post-a-day this week. I want to give each event it’s proper attention.
First up . . . I attended Diana Frey’s Twisted Sistah 2-day workshop held in her amazing home studio in San Luis Obispo on July 10 & 11 with my BFF Lia. This was a serious jewelry making workshop and we came away we so much knowledge and inspiration. It’s hard to put into words, so I’ll tell you what my gal pal Charlene says about Diana . . . “Once you’ve attend one of her classes, you’re addicted!” Everywhere you looked in Diana’s studio there was something to catch your eye. We ooood and awwwwd over everything. Of course, I was only there for about 2 minutes before a huge tray of vintage rhinestone bling magnetically drew me right to it! LOL We learned how to make our own brass freeform necklace base, brass and sterling chain links & headpins, soldered using a butane torch and worked with resin. Everyone came with their own theme and color choice in mind. Some pieces were petite and delicate and then there’s my baby . . . I am in LOVE! How freak’in FabUlous is this!
I wasn’t planning to use the resin bezel piece but when I saw the picture of the redhead Diana had in the group of images she set out for us, I had to go for it and then I just happen to have my entire stash of bling with me to finish her off.
We had such a great group of talented ladies . . . (back row left to right: Lia, Carla, Julie, Susan, Diana and Mari then me & Carrie in front). Sorry I didn’t get everyone’s blogs.
I will definitely be taking more of Diana’s classes cuz I’m addicted too!
